Less than a week ago, XG entered the Mediabase Top 40 Radio Airplay Chart in the United States of America. At the time, the group landed at the 40th position, sitting on the same chart as American superstars like Miley Cyrus, Taylor Swift, Beyoncé, Lady Gaga, and Lizzo. Before this accomplishment, Joji was the first Japanese artist to enter the US Radio Top 40 Chart.


On March 6, XG became the first female act and the first Japanese group to achieve this. After becoming viral on social media, the girls promoted the song in media in the United States of America, South America, and Asia. Their songs ‘Shooting Star’ and ‘Left Right’ entered one of Spotify’s Viral 50 playlists (Japan, Singapore, Brazil, Indonesia, United States, and Global) in more than forty-five regions, including the United States of America, Japan, and South Korea, an unprecedented act for a Japanese artist.
